LG 2020 TV lineup boasts Real 8K support, AI picture and audio recognition

The world has just now finally settled down on 4K but TV makers are already bored and are pushing 8K products to consumers. And as with any new format or nascent standard, it is also an opportunity for rivals to try to one-up each other by claiming superiority in ways few consumers might even understand. Samsung may have just claimed the title of having the first TVs certified by the 8K Association but LG is now boasting is doing better with its eight new 2020 TVs, all of which are promised to deliver "Real 8K" experience.

Samsung may not be leaning heavily on its mobile products in Las Vegas next week but it will still have something grand to show off. Just as it has been trying to do on smartphones, Samsung will be revealing what its allegedly the industry's first truly "Zero Bezel" QLED (really OLED) TV but that might not be its only bragging right.

QooCam 8K 360 Camera is small enough to fit in your pocket

QooCam 8K 360 Camera is small enough to fit in your pocket

Smartphone cameras are getting more capable but they're still limited in at least two ways. For one, most are able to do only 4K video recording max. But even those that may be able to do 8K are, by design, unable to capture 360-degree content on the fly. For that, you usually need dedicated 360-degree cameras and the new QooCam 8K from Chinese manufacturer Kandao could be the smallest, cheapest, and most capable consumer product in the market right now.

Sharp 8K TV touts its own ARM processor for high computing performance

CEATEC 2019 is naturally filled with technological wonders, some of which look too futuristic to be available today. In a sea of such forward-looking prototypes and products that may or may not hit the market, Sharp is bringing a comforting and familiar presence in the form of an 8K TV.

LG 8K OLED and 8K NanoCell TVs boast they’re the real 8K deal

The world is still in the process of settling down on 4K yet TV makers, more than content makers, are already trying to push the concept of 8K to consumers. At that point, consumers have become smarter and started asking if there's any benefit to that many pixels, especially on similarly sized TVs. LG's new SIGNATURE OLED 8K TV 88Z9 and 8K NanoCell TV 75SM99 don't exactly answer that question and instead responds to the question that no one probably asked: which is the real 8K TV.

Samsung’s The Wall Luxury 8K TV launches next month and you can’t afford it

If you follow technology news, there's a good chance you've heard of Samsung's massive, modular display called simply "The Wall." What was first launched as a commercial product is now getting a consumer version, nearly a year after Samsung announced that such a model was in the works.
